The United Kingdoms of Lanorth is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by King Leopold III with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.383 billion Lanorthans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantijn. The average income tax rate is 89.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lanorthan economy, worth a remarkable 1,701 trillion Crownes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 316,135 Crownes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanorth's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Lanorth is ranked 22,460th in the world and 1,384th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 10.02 Bank.
